Life So Far

   If I said that my life was spinning out of control, I wouldn't be exaggerating. Okay, maybe a little. But seriously, things are getting pretty wacky in my neck of the woods. I'm starting to get involved in the uber-nerdy world of marching band, underlying tensions between friends are starting to make an appearance, an old camping friend came out of the closet, my best bud is caught in a love triangle, and I think I might be falling for my neighbor. 

So yeah, my life is pretty crazy.
Oh, and did I mention that I'm about to start high school?

   My life is literally flashing before my eyes. It seems like yesterday was my eighth grade graduation, and now I'm almost halfway into July. My friends are getting into fights, and this whole love triangle tragedy with one of my best friends leaves me upset and kind of jealous. I swear, one day, I'm going to wake up with a face full of wrinkles and gray hair, that's how stressful everything is for me. 

What happened to my perfect summer?
What happened to staying best friends forever?

   I guess people change. I guess that boyfriends become more important than REAL friends. I guess that everything I know is going to change, and that really, really scares me. I've never been a big fan of change, and I don't think I'll ever be able to embrace it. Hopefully all of this lovey dovey crap will end before September, and things can go back to the way they were before. If not, I should probably just suck it up and learn to love the change, because after all, change is the only thing that remains constant.
   I know I should probably explain myself, but right now, I don't want to address the situation. What I really want is a coffee and a good book to curl up with. I promise I'll explain the love triangle and the new crush and the marching band situation later, but right now, I need to spend some good old quality time with my Dad. I promise to post later.
